Joint Injection Therapy
Rheumatologists have been trained and have experience placing needles into our patient’s joints in a safe and sterile manner. We do this to remove fluids as well as to inject medications.
A common treatment is to inject cortisone to decrease inflammation and promote healing and recovery.
We also inject hyaluronate into the knee joints for minimizing advanced osteoarthritis pain, and to delay surgery for the replacement of knee joints.
